Nails are regularly taken care of. We trim them once they get longer. We wash and clean them every day. Most, especially women, do manicure and pedicure. Applying nail polish and adding some art makes them look beautiful and more noticeable. But be careful, too much exposure of chemicals on your nails can make them become dull, dry and brittle in the long run.
In a natural state, nails are translucent, dirty white or a bit pink in color depending on the race of a person. They change in color if there’s an indication of a health problem. Like most parts of our body, nails can directly tell you the condition you have to check and treat immediately.
